Future Prometheus by J.M. Erickson


End of Days... With his men missing in action and the target of his

black-op mission killed by his own men, Sargent Jose Melendez

requests extraction from the jungles of Brazil. Prior leaving, he
sees an entire city population wiped out by apparent violence by its
own citizens against each other -- no patterns or organization, just
a free for all murderous rage. Upon arrival at a makeshift refugee,
army fire-base, he learns that the majority of the male population
has been affected by toxic steroid levels resulting in uncontrollable
violent behaviors. With the human species at risk of extinction, his
own past is the key to the future. Joining forces with Dr. Marcella
Del Cruz, an experiment in long-term cryogenic sleep is in the final
stages of testing. However, a several month cryogenic sleeps goes
terribly wrong, leaving Melendez frozen in stasis on Ross Island,
Antarctica, for more than 160 years. He awakens to a future where
there are walled mega-states run by a militant matriarchies, with
cybernetic life forms, artificial persons (AP's) providing services
to keep their civilization flourishing. While human horrors such as
war, poverty, and disease of the "Pre-Fall" days are a
thing of the past, there are other secrets just below the surface of
this utopia. Wondering if he should return to stasis for the hope of
a better future or death, Melendez finds that his duty as a soldier
requires he takes action. With the help of his cybernetic rescuers,
he formulates a plan that will not only change the course of future
but will force humans to evolve and a new artificial sapience to
emerge. Who's left... Second Lieutenant Jose Melendez, USMC, awaits
extraction from the jungles of Brazil as the world's male population
succumbs to toxic steroid levels that drives them to kill everything
in their sight. Dr. Marcella Del Cruz, Chief Scientist, USAF, leads a
classified mission on Ross Island, Antarctica that holds the key to
humanity's future.

Buy the Book

I was given this book for an honest review!
This book was really exciting. I don't seek out sci-fi books to read; but, after this one I will keep an opened mind. The books are so much better than the movies.

This book is set in the 'End of Days'. Sargent Jose Melendez requests to be removed from the jungles of Brazil, when his men go missing and the target of his black-op mission was killed by his own men. When he makes it to an army refugee base, he learns that most of the male population has been affected by toxic steroid levels. This makes the men have uncontrollable violent behaviors! 

Let me tell you this made for a very exciting story. I know you are wondering what happens! Well know you will have to pick up a copy and find out. You won't regret it!
